With all the criticism of Charleston County schools we read about, it is refreshing to read about the accomplishments of a number of schools in Charleston County that provide their students with an excellent education, as well as prepare their students to be leaders within and outside their communities. Wando High School is one such school.

Wando High School in Mt. Pleasant was one of 131 high schools nationwide in 2010 to receive the highly-esteemed National Gold Council of Excellence Award by the National Association of Student Councils.The National Gold Council of Excellence is awarded to student councils that demonstrate the highest levels of leadership and activities, as illustrated by meeting all “Required Standards” and a greater number of “Additional Standards.”

Here is a link to view a list of the schools receiving this award. (http://www.nasc.us/Content/158/2010%20NCOE%20Winner%20List%20for%20Web_3.19.10jrs .pdf - broken link)

Only three schools in South Carolina received this award.

Wow TONS of schools in Nevada and Oklahoma got the award as well but only one in Connecticut and one in Massachusetts was recognized. Zero from RI, NH and VT made it. It goes to show you when it comes to public school education, New England schools are probably barely satsifactory, let alone exemplary and NOTHING like they may be cracked up to be. People moving to Charleston from the northeast may be pleasantly surprised to find that even average schools in Charleston may be FAR better than even most of the "best" public schools in New England are.
